Does he have an offer of employment, or only the Work Visa? It might make a difference.
He is about to get a Work Visa in his passport. How does that chance him to not needing a vaccine when flying into Canada?

I would assume the airlines in the DR will have the same procedure they use for the US regarding the need for a negative Covid test. They give you a form to date and sign about Covid before you get to the counter. At the counter you give your passport, the signed document. and the negative covid test. it is looked at and then you get a boarding pass. If you do not have the negative test result you do NOT get a boarding pass. So the idea of a work visa would have NO merit at all, as he will not get past the counter with no vaccine proof...

I suspect the work visa alone will not allow him to enter Canada if he refuses to be vaccinated, as you both suggest. Some time in September or October that likely be known since that is the time the work visa will be granted and he will try to fly to Canada.

As we know... the Cdn test is much more strict/detailed than the USA requirement

Not sure about the vaccination rule.... being in force yet

Ottawa, Ontario (CNN) — Canada will require most commercial passengers traveling by air, rail or large ship to be fully vaccinated by fall.

So, he may get his work visa in time to sneak in under the wire.

At present when flying into Canada, having two approved vaccine shots can exempt you from the other quarantine measures that are in place. To enter the country you still have to meet the current admissibility requirements, Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or from the USA. There are some other exemptions that allow essential workers/travelers to enter but the issuance of a visa of some kind is not enough on its own. Things for other int'l travelers may open up further in September but the case counts are climbing again so stayed tuned for the next Govt announcements on who can enter and who cannot. Those allowed to enter presently still have to satisfy some other requirements such as a negative PCR test and still have to have a workable quarantine plan if directed to quarantine on arrival by health officials. All of this is outlined when you fill out the required info on the arrivecan website.

From what we have seen they dont have the SPINE for pushing back ..they choose to be passive Aggressive instead, and finger point to others .
That's not fair to say we don't have the spine to push back yes we do when it's the right time and the right reason ! This is not it ! We need to listen to the science,and they are learning more every day. This is a New pandemic ,there's learning and discovery yet to be done . So shut it on the passive crap.

So how many doses is enough? I hope you know that a 3rd dose will be required this year and a 4th dose next year, and more doses after that?

Do you wanna have a lifetime vaccine subscription to Pfizer/Moderna/AstraZeneca?
